What better way to gain fluency in a language than through full immersion? By diving head first into the language you already love, you will learn new words and idioms through speaking all day, every day. Imagine thinking and dreaming in the language that you are studying in a classroom right now! You can live with a host family for additional language immersion and first-hand cultural knowledge that a classroom could never provide.
With the today’s job market more competitive than ever, employers are always looking for things that set potential new hires apart. The ability to fluently communicate in a second language is critical.
